Going Back in Time

The staff there led 3 fantastic activities for the children; a tour of the museum’s Saxon and Viking artefacts; a study of a replica burial site and an archaeological dig where the children used metal detectors and were taught how to excavate. Additionally, the pupils took part in craft activities making replica bone combs, shields and necklaces. Another highlight was learning about Saxon and Viking clothing and trying on different costumes.

Year 4 teacher Tamsin Sawyer commented, “It was an excellent, and very enjoyable, opportunity for the children to deepen their knowledge.”
